Conte suggests Morata could miss the rest of the season

Giorgio Chiellini

But with European commitments adding to their domestic duties, Chelsea have struggled to maintain their form from last season, sitting fourth in the Premier League after successive defeats against Bournemouth and Watford.

Luiz is likely to keep his place against West Brom if Christensen does not recover in time.

"I don't know because he has this problem and we tried a lot to find a solution to solve the pain in his back", Conte said. And that was very much the story at the Hawthorns once again last week as they squandered an early lead against Southampton, eventually losing 3-2.

"My players are getting used to these rumours and speculation". But, for sure, I'm very happy. The players show me every day they want to overcome this situation.

Chelsea are now in the middle of a crisis which might succumb their moderate season so far towards a dead end.

Chelsea's display at Watford was described as "abysmal" by captain Gary Cahill, who called on Chelsea's players to take responsibility and praised the "unbelievable job" under-pressure Conte has done.

According to Opta, West Brom have lost more points from leading positions than any other Premier League side this season, 18 to be exact. We understand that when you lose two games in a row, the situation is not simple. But, maybe, we are increasing the difficulty [ahead] of this team because it seems that we are fighting for the relegation zone.

Pressure has mounted on Wenger in recent years, with the #WengerOut campaign continuing to gather legs amid the side's failure to mount title challenges. But don't forget, last season, he won the title in France with Monaco.

The report states that missing out on Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus last summer was a "particularly bitter blow", with Conte making it clear that he was less than impressed to be given Antonio RĂ¼diger. I remember that, in the first period, I tried to adapt myself to this team.

"We worked hard and in the end we didn't have enough and quality wise it wasn't there".

"If the club decides to send me away, I don't know when, it'll be because they're not happy with my work".

"I like to play football and try to dominate the game".

"My commitment and the commitment of my players is totally for this club".

"Contacts must be very cautious, we have to be attentive to people who are already under contract, we need diplomacy".
